5 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Unless you're looking to get caught, you'll have no problem having fun on campus-- whatever means by which you please.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Underage drinking is prevalent and the campus police are more interested in keeping Hartford locals off campus than stopping students from drinking. It is not uncommon for students to walk around with water bottles of vodka on the Long Walk on a Saturday night and talk to the campus safety officers when drunk. RA's can be strict however and will often write you up if there is alcohol out in your room during a room check.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: They're really not that strict, but if you have a brutal RA freshman year than you're in for a year full of fines and annoyances.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: campus safety is more concerned with catching freshman drinking when they should be worried about the people getting mugged by hartford locals.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Essentially there are no rules. Don't cheat on stuff or leave you're door open when you're ripping a bong and you'll be fine.

Students who are resident assistants (RAs) are allowed to write other students up for drinking and will sometimes have little power trips, but the Campus Safety officers are, for the most part, pretty reasonable.

The Trinity administration is reasonable in understanding that it is better that students drink in the sheltered atmosphere of Trinity, with friends, a bed, and even EMT-trained students close by, than for them to drive to an unsafe bar in the middle of the city, drink too much (as most freshmen tend to do) and then, to cap off the night, drive (swerve) home. Students are generally warned or written up before any serious penalties are imposed, and campus police tend to simply confiscate a student's alcohol instead of pursuing disciplinary action.
